If you've ever caught yourself lamenting the fall of space combat games like Descent and Freespace, you'll want to check out the just released Miner Wars 2081 PC demo. You see, the game is developed by Keen Software House, which has some ties to those very games.
Anywho, Miner Wars is now in alpha stage, following three months of silence and hard work. The demo in question, however, features near final work from the first story-based mission, complete with voice overs and of course, space battles. You can see it in action below. For the modders in the audience, editing tools have been updated.
Hit the source to grab the demo. The full game is planned to launch later this year.
